Bradenton (Fla.) Manatee High 2017 WR Tarique Milton talks Michigan interest and more.

Bradenton (Fla.) Manatee High 2017 WR Tarique Milton discusses his Michigan camp experience, his thoughts on the Wolverines and more.

Bradenton (Fla.) Manatee High 2017 wide receiver Tarique Milton made the short trip to Michigan's satellite camp at nearby St. Thomas Aquinas on Saturday. U-M's camp setting gave the talented Florida native a chance to compete in front of both Michigan and South Florida's coaching staffs, among others. 

“It was a lot of competition out here, we all competed hard,” Milton said. “The weather was very hot, but that don’t do nothing but get you better.”

And both U-M and USF are showing him interest too.

“I heard from USF already,” he said. “I talked to a Michigan coach a few weeks ago.”

What did U-M say its interest level was in Milton exactly?

“They said they was interested in me, that they wanted to come by and see me when they get a chance,” Milton said of the Wolverines, adding: “I’m really excited about (a possible U-M offer). I’m ready to show what I have to see if I can play on that type of level.”

Milton says his notable offers include: Michigan State, Kentucky, Louisville and Pittsburgh.

“Really, when I take my visits it’s wherever I feel the most comfortable,” Milton said. “That’s where I am going to choose where I am going to go.”

Milton noted distance would not play a factor in his decision.
